Since when does Captain America use a gun?

He used a gun in the 40s serial. And Bucky America uses one. But for the most part the Rogers Cap really didn't in the comics. He was just that good. He could take a squad of heavily armed SS troopers with only his shield and bare fists.

"We're sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers," said Joe Johnston, "He's a guy that wants to serve his country but he's not a flag-waver. We're reinterpretating sort of what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was."

He wants to serve his country, but he's not this sort of jingoistic American flag-waver," Johnston added. "He's just a good person. We make a point of that in the script: Don't change who you are once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier, you have to stay who you are inside, that's really what's important more than your strength and everything. It'll be interesting and fun to put a different spin on the character and one that the fans are really going to appreciate."


Sounds exactly like the Comic book Steve to me.

Yeah, I don't see the difference either. Which is good since this is why I love Captain America.

Just expressing an opinion on some creative choices, not "hating".

I propose a moratorium on this mindless ghetto-speak term. I understand that it is shorthand for "I'm incapable of presenting the merits of my position so I will attempt to undermine yours by dismissing it," but it really does bespeak an embarrassing intellectual shortfall that stymies the desire to engage in discourse here.

This version of the CA uniform is not what I'd choose, but I can live with it. I assume that we'll see a different one in the Avengers movie.

Love the poster, love the costume (the suspenders are still but what the hey), and the director seems like he understands the character. Cap was never intended to be a mindless flag-waving type. He knew what he was fighting for.

very well.

if you must be so churlishly dismissive before even seeing so much as a single frame of celluloid on the screen, why must you post here? your relentless negativity is very wearing and i find the repetitive dismissal of any change from the original comics to be annoying and juvenile. your persistant hatred for any deviation from pre-established comics and their continuity are entirely symptomatic of all that is wrong with the comics industry and its fanbase - namely a desire to cling to the past and a never-ending nostalgia for all that has gone before, never allowing new talent to take characters in a new direction for more than a short period before retconning the story back to the old status quo or shoving it off to one side as part of some 'other world' story that doesn't affect current continuity.

frankly, sir, you are boring.

or, to put it more bluntly: fuck the haters.
